Eagerly Awaiting New Year!
Thursday, November 30th, 2006
Wow! I can’t believe another week has gone by, and it is almost December. However, I am not complaining. That just means the 2007 golf season is just around the corner. After a long golf season, it’s nice to just relax and stop traveling every week. But after I am home for a couple of months, I am ready to get back on the road again and start competing.
The off-season is the best time for me to adjust my swing and tune up my game. I am extremely happy about where I have gotten with my golf swing. I am hitting the ball much more solidly and very consistently. I am looking forward to seeing where I’ll be in another month, since I have only been working on this swing for about three weeks. My entire goal is to have a swing that is consistent and will hold up under pressure.
I finally got a chance to play a consecutive 18 holes on Turtle Point yesterday. Whenever I get off of work, I usually only have enough time to play nine holes, so it was nice yesterday to have the day off and not have to beat the sun going down. I did not score the best, but I hit shots I was not capable of hitting before. It’s nice to visualize a shot you want to hit and then execute it. It’s those kind of shots that convince me I am on the right track with my golf swing.
So, this is the famous week of LPGA qualifying school. As most of you know, I did not qualify this year. But I do have many friends going through the grueling rounds this week. I would like to wish them luck and send them good vibes. I am thinking about all of you, my good friends, and I hope you play well. I am dedicating my quote of the week to my girls! This one is from Dale Carnegie: “Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.” Go get ‘em, ladies!!
